Each day Media Bias Fact Check selects and publishes fact checks from around the world. We only utilize fact-checkers that are either a signatory of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) or have been verified as credible by MBFC. Further, we review each fact check for accuracy before publishing. When appropriate we explain the rating and/or offer our own rating if we disagree with the fact-checker. (D. Van Zandt)

Left vs. Right Bias: How we rate the bias of media sources
Seems Disingenuous “blatant lie” rating given by media-biased-fact-check on Washington lost four pinnochios. The “tongue-in-cheek” claim of “non-“infrastructure bill was to deride nomenclature and taxonomy and political-miss-speak what is called bipartisan infrastructure bill clearly not being traditional infrastructure and everyone but wapo & you knew better, not a reference to BBB morass.
